Ex-Michigan DB commits to Mountain West program
Former Michigan defensive back Hunter Reynolds is heading to the Mountain West.
Saturday morning, the former Wolverine tweeted out that he has committed to Utah State to finish his career in college football. He had previously entered his name in the transfer portal a few weeks ago as Michigan was closing down spring practice.
“Next chapter gon[na] be the best one yet,” Reynolds wrote on Twitter, along with a photo in a Utah State uniform.

Reynolds was a member of Michigan’s 2017 recruiting class but did not play during his freshman season, retaining his redshirt status. He will be a graduate transfer and will still have two seasons of eligibility remaining after the NCAA granted a blanket waiver for all fall student-athletes in 2020.
Last fall, Reynolds appeared in all six games for the Wolverines, playing in the secondary and on special teams. He was credited with 16 tackles, including 1 stop for loss. In 2019, he played in 12 games but primarily on special teams.
During his career in Ann Arbor, Reynolds has played in 20 games, most of those coming in a role on special teams. He’s been credited with 22 tackles, 2 of which came in the backfield.
